Lesson in Patience

car troubleA young woman’s car stalled at a stoplight. She tried to get it started, but nothing would happen. The light turned green, and there she sat, angry and embarrassed, holding up traffic. The car behind her could have gone around, but instead the driver added to her anger by laying on his horn.

After another desperate attempt to get the car started, she got out and walked back to the man honking his horn. The man rolled down his window in surprise.

“Tell you what,” she said. “This isn’t getting us anywhere. Why don’t you go start my car, and I’ll sit back here and honk the horn for you.”

“But the fruit of the Spirit is…patience…”—Galatians 5:22.
